Youth Gone Wild: McKeever, Norton team for Fear Itself: Youth in Revolt

Fear Itself: Youth in Revolt

Writer Sean McKeever and artist Mike Norton, the co-creators of the character Gravity, are getting the band back together for a miniseries that will team their creation with several other of Marvel’s younger heroes, including Firestar and various characters who were featured in Avengers: The Initiative.

Fear Itself: Youth in Revolt, a tie-in to Marvel’s big event, is “a limited series this May that will see former members of the Initiative drafted back into government service as the Marvel Universe begins to fall apart in a spiral of terror,” according to

“With YOUTH IN REVOLT, we’re taking a look at how a palpable sense of fear and despair can affect the younger generation of heroes,” McKeever told “In the first issue, they’re deputized by the federal government in anticipation of terrible things to come, but what then? When they’re rushed into action without any strategy, who suffers? When things get out of hand, who will step up and who will crumble? And how well can they stand up to their own fears?”

Some of the other characters mentioned as appearing in the series include Cloud 9, Prodigy, Thor Girl, Komodo, Hardball, Ultragirl and “other members of Marvel’s youth movement” who the creators wouldn’t reveal quite yet.

I am on board for this. Can’t wait. Wish some more Young Allies were involved. Hopefully they will be.

““other members of Marvel’s youth movement” who the creators wouldn’t reveal quite yet.”

I’ll go out on a limb here and guess one of them is Firestar… since she’s on the cover. :)

@Alemander: Yeah, sorry about that. Too much Skid Row running through my head, I guess.

@Greg: Since I had mentioned Firestar and Gravity in the lede, I didn’t include’em in the list at the end. I wonder, though, if some other New Warriors will appear.

McKeever gets $5 American if a time lost Kid Nova appears.

First Mystery Men, now Youth in Revolt. Marvel’s sure getting brazen now that they have daddy Disney behind them.

I was hoping this would be a mini where Michael Cera faces Fear Itself and grows a moustache.
